News: Reece (foot) caught one pass for four yards in Friday's preseason game against the Packers. Impact: Reece has merely been dealing with foot soreness, though he did wear a protective boot earlier this week. He'll likely be fine for the regular season, and is still locked in as the starting fullback. With his weight down to 238 pounds (from 250), there's been some talk of Reece handling an increased role in the passing game. Realistically, he'll probably be somewhat underused again, as the Raiders signed Maurice Jones-Drew in the offseason, and Darren McFadden is healthy. Reece may be a better third-down back than both of those guys, but that doesn't mean he'll be consistently used in the role.(RotoWire, )

News: Reece (foot) is expected to play in Friday's preseason game against the Packers, the Bay Area News Group reports. "He looked good out there running around so he should be good to go for the game," coach Dennis Allen said Wednesday. Impact: The Raiders ordered X-ray and MRI exams after Reece suffered the injury in last Friday's exhibition game, but coach Dennis Allen has not disclosed the results, instead opting to go no further than to identify his injury as a "foot." Reece has reported improvement in the last two days and does not believe the ailment will require maintenance throughout the regular season. However, he's still in a protective boot, and while Reece thinks he'll be fine to go Friday, there's an outside chance Allen could change his mind about Reece playing.(RotoWire, )

News: Reece (foot) missed practice Monday, reports. Impact: We'll consider Reece, who is dealing with some foot soreness, and has an MRI on tap, day-to-day for now. While the fullback's role in the Raiders' attack out of the gate is unclear, Reece -- a capable pass catcher -- has occasionally provided fantasy utility in the past, when pressed into extended action due to injuries in the Oakland backfield.(RotoWire, )
